OK news media, every story has two sides. We have seen what convicted felons, mentally disturbed and drug addicts can do with their guns, which are stolen and unregistered to say the least. Two laws broken right there! Now, let's hear from those hundreds of legal gun owners who are alive and well today because they were armed and ready when violence entered their lives.  

Over 60 million people in this country own firearms legally. Positive thinking, intelligent, hard working citizens living within their rights. Many carry weapons and have saved countless lives while suddenly involved in others' criminal actions.

We have heard the prosecution, now we are ready to hear the defense.  Why not from you and your "unbiased" news agencies? We are safe today because we have the largest civilian Army in the world watching over this great country of ours.
